Description

Charming miniature folk art nativity is bright with Christmas cheer. Tiny nativity figures are made from bread dough and hand-painted. Bread dough folk art in Ecuador has its origins in Roman Catholic and Indian traditions. For the Day of the Dead in early November, families honor deceased relatives by placing simple bread dough figurines by their grave sites. In some regions, figures are also made for the Procession of the Christ Child and Godparents Day before Lent.

Decorative only. Keep out of reach of children.
